Do you have a Korean friend? What is your favorite Korean food? If you think you can make an interesting video of any of these two topics, you may want to join the video contest about Korea sponsored by Arirang TV and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea. This contest is open to anyone of any age who is not of Korean descent.
To join, you must select one of the two topics:

- My favorite Korean food is… (Talk about your favorite Korean food and why you like it. If you have cooked it before, or if you have your own special recipe for it, include this in your video.)
The video should not be longer than 3 minutes and should be uploaded on Youtube or any other legal video-sharing website. You may record it on your mobile phone, digital camera, video camera or any other digital device. A video in English or Korean is preferred.
